Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. Announces Investigation Of Baltic Trading Limited (NYSE: BALT) Buyout

Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. announces that it is investigating potential legal claims against the board of directors of Baltic Trading Limited (“Baltic” or the “Company”) (NYSE: BALT) regarding possible breaches of fiduciary duties and other violations of law related to the Company’s entry into an agreement to be acquired by Genco Shipping & Trading Limited (“Genco”) (OTC PINK: GSKNF).

Under the terms of the agreement, shareholders of Baltic will receive 0.216 shares of Genco for each share of Baltic common stock owned.  Based on Genco’s closing price on April 7, 2015, the day prior to the announcement, Baltic shareholders would have received compensation valued at approximately $1.60 per share.  However, based on Genco’s closing price on May 1, 2015, Baltic shareholders would have received compensation only valued at $1.50 per share.

The investigation concerns whether Baltic’s board of directors failed to adequately shop the Company and obtain the best possible value for Baltic’s shareholders before entering into an agreement with Genco.

If you own the common stock of Baltic and purchased your shares before April 8, 2015, if you have information or would like to learn more about these claims, or if you wish to discuss these matters or have any questions concerning this announcement or your rights or interests with respect to these matters, please contact Seth D.
